Bridal hair trends of summer 2018

Hi, beauties!

It’s great to share with you my views on hairstyling trends for the summer of 2018!

So as we may see from runways and fashion tendencies the trends in hairstyling become more and more natural and soft almost casual looking as they suit almost all dress types, enhance natural beauty of hair and the bride, and look extremely feminine and romantic.

5 bridal and wedding hair trends you're about to see this summer

Messy low bridal updoes

The first type that I would like to speak about are: messy low bridal updoes. They never look overdone or too much elaborated: it’s a great modern hairstyle with a fusion of braids and softness of hair. Look great with highlights in hair. They are chic, simple and romantic, and can be decorated as with fresh flowers as with handmade hair accessories.


Classic bridal updoes

They can be low or high, cleaner in style, but still looking very soft and not overwhelmed with details, decorated with fancy headpieces.


Casual bridal bun

The chignons in 2018 are very relaxed in style, looking almost casual and for everyday look, simple; this hairstyle type can be a great solution for short, medium hair (for a fuller effect a hairstylist can use hair extensions), and long hair. This hair is wonderful for formal and informal occasions. They look better on hair with highlights. Very nice for shabby chic and boho weddings.


Ponytails and braids

Should be very soft, a little bit messy for 2018 tendencies, that require softness and enhance natural beauty of hair. They suit every wedding dress, especially romantic ones and can be decorated with fresh flowers, flowers crowns or handmade hair accessories.


Soft half updoes

Soft half updoes are always in fashion even in 2018. It’s important that the curls are very soft more like beachwaves style. This hairstyle type usually may include braids and twists. This hairstyle is wonderful for romantic dresses, as they look soft and simple but very feminine.

And that’s all about bridal hair trends of summer 2018: hope this article was useful!

Esin & Mehmet’s wedding

This amazing couple from Turkey got married in Rome in November 2017. It was a wonderful sunny day, very warm and colourful! Zeynep, a very pleasant and professional wedding planner (Romadaevlen) was in charge of organising the wedding of Esin and Mehmet.

The bride didn’t have time for the test, so we had an online beauty consultation. For her wonderful designer's dress from laces she wanted a very fresh bridal make up with a good uniform and dewy skin, neutral warm eyeshadows, well-defined eyebrows, some false eyelashes which are never enough and berry colour lipstick on her lips that suited perfectly her skin shade.

It was simply a pleasure to do make up on such a beautiful face, with great smile and big expressive eyes! As a hair accessory she had a beautiful handmade tiara, so we left her long and dark hair in loose natural curls and waves. The bride had a lot of girlfriends and bridesmaids, all beautiful; for some of them my team did hair and make up service.

Esin and Mehmet decided to have their destination wedding in Rome as they are in love with this city. And it was a wonderful idea!

Mexican-Italian wedding in Rome: my bride Lori’s make up and hairstyle

My beautuful bride Lori contacted me in January, as she was getting married with her husband. They both live in USA but Lori is originally from Mexico and her husband from Fara Sabina; so they decided to get married in beautiful Lazio as Fara Sabina has amazing landscapes, forests and fields.

We were able to do the make up and hair trial in the middle of April, but before we discussed online all the details and Lori’s preferences. During the trial I suggested to try more than one hairstyle, so she could choose the best for her. It was nice that her husband was present: he was very curious and in the end he liked everything. According to my experience, men are usually very direct in saying if they like or not their wives make up and hair, and if there is something wrong they will tell you everything right away!

On the wedding day, my assistants and I came very early as the wedding was at 10; the weather was fantastic, sunny and warm, so everyone was happy!

We did a soft low updo with a nice comb as a hair accessory that gave nice light to the dark hair, and a nice radiant make up with pinkish shades that suit perfect on Lori’s dark skin tone. Black eyeliner and false single eyelashes are always a must as they make dark eyes very expressive.

All products I used assured a long lasting but very natural effect. After the wedding, Lori wrote to me that everything went perfectly: her makeup and hair lasted until very late night.

It’s so great for my job working with different types of beauty and see how it becomes enhanced by a professional touch. For me every woman is beautiful and, as Sophia Loren said, “nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief she is beautiful”! And I’m sure this is what a make up artist should do: being a real psychologist able to help women to make their self-esteem higher!

A nice walk around Rome on Easter

Rome is a fantastic city and it attracts creative people with creative ideas. A famous Russian actress Anastasia Busygina wanted to surprise her best friend and as a birthday gift she organised a photoshoot in Rome with professional make up artist & hairstylist and photographer service.

It was a great and sunny Easter's day: Rome was half empty as italians went out of town, so our two young women really enjoyed the Eternal City. A bit before I came to their hotel in via Veneto my client explained to me what she likes and usually does for photoshoots: she loves smoky eyes, with lots of eyelashes, nude lips and radiant skin. Her dress, by Dolce and Gabbana, was very beautiful: black with dots, long and very stylish, so great smokey eyes make up suited the whole look perfectly. I used all products by Mac.

For the hairstyle she preferred a lot of volume up, very soft and almost natural waves. Anastasia also decided to follow the style, so I did on her smokey eyes make up but in a lighter variant: it looked very well with her dress.

The girls enjoyed a lot their Roman experience taking photos all around in their beautiful dresses!

Russian-Italian destination wedding in Terni, Umbria

Umbria is a great place for destination weddings in Italy: it is very close to Tuscany,
it has picturesque and breathtaking landscapes, castles and medieval small towns,
and for what concerns destinations weddings is less expensive, if compared to other regions of Italy.

Our beautiful bride from Russia and her Italian husband decided to get married in Terni, a town in Umbria, that advertises itself as the "City of lovers" as its patron saint,
Saint Valentine, was born and became a bishop here.

The couple got married in April: as you can see from the pictures, all nature reveals
its spring's green colours, warm weather, sun and a clear blue sky.

My bride Kate is a very beautiful girl, very tall, blond, with wavy soft fair hair, big green-blue eyes and full lips. A real joy for any make up artist! She looks great
without make up, but with a professional wedding make up she became a real model.

When we tried make up and different hairstyles before the wedding, she told me she wanted to make her natural beauty pop out, so I used neutral pinkish shades
from famous Naked 2 palette of Urban Decay to make her eyes even greener,
a black eyeliner in gel by Mac, false eyelashes, Giorgio Armani lasting silk foundation for glowy and flawless skin, a mineral transparent mineralized powder by Mac
for a perfect finish and Crème Cup lipstick by Mac.

Kate's wedding dress was very beautiful and romantic, with a lot of laces: so for her wedding hairstyle she wanted an updo that looked very soft and curly. I created a lot of curls with a hair curler and then fixed all the curls up, leaving some natural strands
of hair out. As final touch, I added some fresh flowers: her bridal hair looked gorgeous and very romantic.
